IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Adjust for ports being blocked by your firewall or being used by other applications

At various times during the installation you will need to specify or accept the defaults for port numbers used by ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications.

By default, ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications will communicate in the following ways:

You need to ensure that these connections are not blocked by a firewall. If they are blocked, either modify the communication settings during installation and configuration of the agent, or change the settings of the firewall. To determine the connections your firewall may block, see the documentation supplied with the firewall.

If you are using ITCAM for Application Diagnostics Managing Server, you also need to make sure that ports used for inbound communication are not used by other applications. If they are used by other applications, you will need to change the ports for data collector inbound communication when configuring the data collector (see Step 6). To list the ports used by other applications, run the command netstat -a; in its output, look for lines that include LISTENING.
